2017 Total Win Analysis


2017 ASA prediction – Play OVER 9 Wins for the Baltimore Ravens

nfl helmet - ravensBaltimore has been one of the more consistent franchises in the NFL winning at least 8 games in 8 of the last 9 seasons.  Last year they finished 8-8 and we expect a jump to at least 9 wins this year.  This is a team that outgained their opponents by 26 YPG last year and outscored their opponents on the season.  They only lost two games all season long by more than 7 points.  Five of their eight losses came at the hands of playoff teams and in three of their losses they led with 2:15 or less remaining in the game.  This team could have easily topped 8 wins last season.  The schedule sets up for them to get off to a fast start as 3 of their first 6 games come against Cleveland, Jacksonville, and Chicago, none of whom topped 3 wins last season.  The Birds also close out the season with 4 of their final 6 games at home and one of those two roadies comes @ Cleveland which is a probable win.  Baltimore has one of the more stable coaching staffs in the NFL and head man John Harbaugh has proven his worth with an impressive 85-59 NFL regular season record.  We think 9-7 at worst for this team which would get us a push at worst as well.
